Next week we close on the new house! I am beyond excited to begin design projects. The new space has good natural light. Hardwood floors in the entry and dining room, tile in the kitchen and breakfast area. In a few years we will redesign the kitchen. For now I am content to pin
The first space we plan to update is our office area. It will be a multi-use room that double as a downstairs guest room. We need a good quality pull-out couch (would love suggestions!) as we need our parents to sleep comfortably when they visit. Rowe Furniture has a few styles I like. I also like a few from Room & Board. And I love the idea of wallpaper on an accent wall. Its been a dream of mine for years and an office area would be the perfect spot.
The new home will have a dedicated playroom! One of my goals for the playroom is limit clutter and evoke a sense of calm. It is important to limit visual stimulation in little ones' spaces. It also keeps toys exciting when they are rotated in and out of the space. I am definitely pinning storage solution ideas and planning trips to IKEA!
How is your summer? I am ready to settle in to our new space, meet neighbors, and try out the local pool! Any moving or design tips? I would love to hear them!
(ps) Are you a new visitor? Take a peak at our previous home's feature at Design Mom last year. Looking forward to the design challenge of making the new house our own!
